Vex Mythoclast Max Attack (via DeeJ)

If you guys follow our Twitter or Facebook, we shared this a few days ago, and you already know about this.

For those who don’t, DeeJ confirmed that neither the Vex Mythoclast or VoG Legendary weapons will be updated to the standard 331 Attack.

The Vex Mythoclast will not be bumped up to 331 Attack.

The Vex Mythoclast (while branded as an Exotic) is bound as a reward to the Vault of Glass. Thus, it shall be frozen in time. I cannot predict the future. For now, it will remain as it is… the most dreaded gun in PVP.

On the topic of Legendary VoG weapons,

[331 Attack is] only for Exotics. Our Visions of Confluences are still frozen in time. I love that gun, too. I’ll continue to beg for future solutions.

    This is so disappointing 🙁

    So that means the top prize from the VoG is less than the other lucky random exotic rewards…

    • Aron Beijl

      Honestly, the 8 less damage rating makes a very small difference I think. After all, CE normal is capped at 32 and your Vex will do fine there. As to hard mode – again, only 8 less attack rating will not make that much of a difference. It’s still a great gun, I hope to get it soon…

      • BAMozzy69 .

        I am not denying its a good weapon – I have 3 fully upgraded Vex Mythoclasts and do use them regularly – particularly for the first part of the CE Raid and that Fusion Bounty. The problem is that its not ‘Great’. The update before the DLC bumped the attack rating but severely nerfed the ‘Extended Mag’ perk – reducing the number of shots by over 31% – 21 shots! Its reload isn’t the quickest and it burns through ammo very quickly too. Not only that, it has one of the smallest reserve ammo count too with only 5x the mag compared with around 9x of all the other primaries (except Universal Remote and No Land Beyond).
        Although they have amended the general Exotic rewards from the VoG, this is still quite a rare occurrence so doesn’t really add any reason to run it – certainly not from my perspective as I have all the VoG weapons, all the exotic weapons and more ascendant materials than anyone could need. To ‘freeze’ the VoG in this way is ridiculous. I know Bungie may want people to buy the DLC and run the new Raid but making other parts of the game obsolete is not a great way to go about it. I understand that the Armour with its upgrade system (ascendants) may make the CE raid armour too annoying to get and upgrade as it requires Radiant Shards but they could have patched the VoG Armour to be similar in terms of upgrades and added Radiant materials to the VoG. Alternatively they could have made the Armour and weapons to be similar to purchasable Legendary items with the same attack (331)/Light (33). Either way it would have still kept a part of the game relevant and a reason to play.
        The only time I play the VoG now is if ‘friends’ want to run it for whatever reason which isn’t that often. As I have so many Ascendants, I have little to no reason to do the Dailies either unless it ties in with a Bounty, need/want to upgrade something or playing with friends.
        It seems that all I do nowadays is run the Nightfall, Crotas End Raid (I still need Radiant and a couple of pieces of Armour for my Titan) and the Heroics.

        I know most people who want Destiny will probably have it now but assuming there maybe newcomers to the game, what reason would they have to run the VoG? They can buy better/higher rated Armour and weapons. I know the Weapons are still good at 300/323 though but I do wish they had brought the VoG up to the same or at least a similar level as Crota – I am sure people would run both.

        • Finlay Jones

          Perhaps they will raise them after HoW comes out. Mythoclast is still sick now, and I use corrective measure and praedyth’s in pvp.

          • Taylor6979

            I hope they do. People shouldn’t be forced to buy DLC because they will become permanently weaker than everyone. That doesn’t make sense.

          • Pino Show

            They don’t need to… THey can still buy Lv.31 Gear from the Vendors and find weapons with 331 attack value. They’re just locked out of Lv.32 and DLC content… It’s not smething console gamers are used to, but stuff like this happends every time in MMO games, even in a more “brutal” way for those without DLC 🙂 Bungie is doing a pretty well done job in my opinion… TH eonly thing I hate is the exclusive buls*it with locked content for Xbox, and that I have to wait ’till september to get a chance and grab the Hawkmoon :/ The only thing I really want from the locked content… Hope Xur will sell it as soon as it’s unlocked, but it’snot gonna happend :/
            Also, I got offtopic, but whatever 😀

      • Matthew Holland

        you fail to look long term (like most of the destiny community). by the time the coment expansion comes out, exotics will have 2 buffs to attack 331 to 365 to 402 (im extrapolating by multiplying by 1.103). which means the mythoclast will be severly underpowered by 80 attack to ALL other exotics you get.

    • Alex Howden

      True as that may be It not really a gun that you use in PvE in most cases. Most people would use Ice Breaker or G.horn as it more practical.

      • BAMozzy69 .

        I know I certainly do for he majority of the time. I am sure though, if it was upgraded in line with other Exotics and in keeping its previous status (i.e higher than al other Exotics) It would get more use. Like I said I generally only use mine to do hat Fusion bounty and maybe the first section (Abyss) of the Crota Raid

        • Alex Howden

          Hopeful they will buff it when the house of wolves comes out, If they do I think they will buff it a little bit above other exotics then. DeeJ did say it would be the best PvE gun in the game for all times, so let hope it soon rather than later.

  • BOoya956

    So, everything from VoG will become more useless when HoW comes out.

    • Octus

      that’s how expansion packs for rpgish types of games usually work. All of the weapons you love will be completely useful for the current content. I’m sure there will be fun new weapons in HoW anyways. So don’t stress too much buddy.

      • Oriel76

        I’m just taking an exemple at a game I use to know well : Borderlands, although you’d grind LvL DLC after DLC the weapons with new stats were always up to date.

        • Mezi-Crochet

          Well thatS, not how Destiny work… and you know what? I loved it. You just grind, grind and regrind. The vision of confluence will be someday a good memory! And it’s ok like that, plenty of other new primary legendary weapons are near.

          • Octus

            totally agree, there are plenty of great weapons now. And the future will have many more.

          • Chico2000

            @Octus, I feel that you are just being a troll. Those that don’t get the dlc are S.O.L. and don’t get any chance at new gear/weapons. If you were a true Destiny gamer, you would know this. They are under-powered. The moment you put Bungie was being nice was the moment you ratted yourself out.

          • Octus

            I have the dlc, my brother in law did not when it came out. I could have sworn that he had access to the vanguard items. I know that the old vanguard stuff is gone. Are you saying they can’t buy vanguard stuff at all now? Or did their game not update with the new armor? If they have access to the new armor, then that is part of the expansion. That is the stuff im talking about. Not story or strikes. Saying I’m a troll and name calling when I’m just trying to have a discussion also seems lame. I have been playing since the beta. I don’t really care if you think I’m a fan or whatever, but you are welcome to check out my stats and see if I’m lying. Psn is same as my name here. If I’m wrong about something I’m fine at admitting it. But I don’t like being name called online. You aren’t talking to me in person and I doubt you would talk to a stranger that way in real life.

          • Chico2000

            Fiirst off, I said I feel like you are just being a troll. I did not directly say that you are one. Second, we are talking about DLC, so don’t try to change the subject away from DLC. Third, if you are offended, then it with with great regret that I inform you that I don’t care because I did not insult you. Your arguement is invalid. If you can show that I directly insulted you via name-calling, provide proof and I will gladly apologize for it (even though I shouldn’t because there is no case for it)

          • Octus

            cool, thanks for the info.

          • Octus

            this is where I got my information
            it says all players will have access to vendor gear.
            http://www.bungie.net/7_The-Dark-Below-Preview/en/News/News?aid=12442

          • Chico2000

            Serious dude, you had to wait a day before finding a link and then posting it. If you had that info before then you should have posted it right away. Players are still weaker without raid gear and will continue to be that way until they are forced to give in and pay up.

          • Octus

            they have access to the gear from the iron banner also, which has a high level now.

          • Taylor6979

            It’s really not okay like that. This is what kills RPGs because players that don’t have access to the new weapons are just going to quit. All of their weapons and armor will be completely useless and that is bull shit for them. People shouldn’t be forced to buy the DLC or just become weaker than everyone else.

          • Octus

            I agree somewhat, but if you look at it like the people who didn’t buy the dlc still have access to everything they had before, the weapons they have are still completely useful. Plus Bungie was nice enough to let them have access to new vanguard/crucible weapons and armor to increase their level and weapon power. The only stuff they can’t do is the new missons. So they are overpowered if you think about it for the old stuff.

          • Taylor6979

            No, actually they don’t have access to all the new gear. If you don’t have the DLC you don’t get to purchase any of the new Gear or Weapons in the Vendors.

      • BOoya956

        So why spent so much money, time, and creativity in one raid and then let slowly die. Expansions should add to the game and not take or make other parts irrelevant in my opinion.

        • Octus

          its an old raid now, there isn’t much more to say other than look to the future and the fun weapons and raid that will come. You can always just play the VoG for fun running any weapons from the past that you want. Its still an option. And those weapons are completely awesome still in story missions and daily bounties/events.

          • Taylor6979

            That doesn’t really make sense to just make something entirely irrelevant. I have ran into people level 30 who have never even touched VoG because they don’t have to. It is actually probably a big waste of time to even run VoG anymore.

          • Octus

            its as relevant as anyone wants it to be. If you are looking for more game content, its right there waiting. Just like all of the old story missions. If all you want is to get the best newest gear, then just wait til the Destiny series is complete and play the last version of it. Otherwise just have fun.

          • BOoya956

            True, but I guess not try as hard because eventually everything I obtain will become obsolete. I like this game but now I feel like is pointless to get gear or weapons. Just have fun doing things over and over again without any real or meaningful reward.

          • Octus

            I guess I just look at it differently. The reward for me is relaxing and enjoying a hobby with my friends. If new content comes out, I’m just happy for more things to do.

          • BOoya956

            So, we can say everyone sees it differently and no one right or wrong because we get different things out of it.

          • Octus

            yup, for sure. Hope you have fun playing man.

          • BOoya956

            Thanks, I have plenty of friends that I play with, but I’m starting to feel like a hamster on a wheel. Thanks for being and staying cool about it.

          • Octus

            absolutely.
            🙂
            thank you also. Hope this weeks reset lands you something great.

  • Gypsyxo

    I’m having a hard time getting shit done, I’m a girl yes but i’m pretty good lol. I’m so far a level 25 hunter… Im just asking for help, No GTFO’s please! Haha if you want to add me my ps4 name is the same as here. Just need help getting better gear and whatnot.

    • Octus

      the best advice I can give is too run the daily story and do as many bounties as possible everyday. When you turn in the bounties make sure don’t have a factions class item equiped. you should be leveling up your vanguard ranking first since it is so easy to get vanguard marks(which you need to purchase gear from them).
      another thing I did was run as many strikes as I could from the strike playlist. This will give you tons of engrams and you may get some great armor from it or strange coins from decryption, which in turn you can use to purchase an exotic piece if armor from Xur this weekend. A good rule is get armor first and weapons after that. Being a higher level through the light level in armor makes you much better.

    • James Somerville

      Just do bounties and strikes over and over buy the vendor gear and use strange coins to get an exotic piece then you can eventually work on leveling up to 31 then do Crota raid with experienced players your soon get there

    • Shilenitou

      Best way would be if you could reach lvl 27 then some good Player or Team can carry you throu Crotas End Raid and hopefully you get some Raid Gear

  • Tim Schafer

  • Oriel76

    That is very disappointing…

  • Eric

    I’m OK with this at the present time. Despite not being 331, it’s still a very effective weapon in many situations.

    However, attack ratings will almost certainly increase again with House of Wolves. I would be disappointed if we don’t see an upgrade path at that point.

  • jmd

    That’s so funny because my vex is at 331…

    • Mezi-Crochet

      Yeah sure!

  • keith

    goshdayumit. The Vex is a damn exotic. Its and exotic. It deserves the same treatment as any of the other exotics and it was one that had to be earned not bought. If any exotic needs to keep going and attack needs to be raised with each dlc its the Vex mythoclast. Bungie cmon what are you thinking. People love this gun it also gives people that dont have it a reason to still run vault of glass. Hold true to your word. You said exotics would be worth there weight in gold as the dlc’s progressed. So keep your damn word and Bring the Vex with us. It is one of the elite exotics. Not doing so is an epic fail.
